Summary

Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Information Technology Service and Inland Fisheries Service developed a data management system referred to as the Geographic Inland Fisheries Survey system (GIFS). The GIFS database contains all parameters typical of fisheries information including date, location, fish species, invertebrate species, habitat, water quality, and tournament details. The information is often oriented to sport fish surveys though not exclusively. MARIS is an internet-based information sharing network that allows multiple states to provide a common set of variables via a single web interface.

Purpose

MARIS was initially developed to serve a need for states to provide data in response to data requests from multiple federal agencies. However, it has evolved to provide a potentially valuable tool for state agencies to provide data in response to numerous data inquiries from members of the public or nongovernmental organizations. The initial focus of MARIS was to provide data elements related to the “status and trends” of fisheries, but this thinking has evolved into a broader utility of the data including serving as a conduit for states to contribute data for the National Fish Habitat Partnership (NFHP)and other stakeholders.
